Why would Kyle Bass’ color be red? Well, it’s not because he’s conservative. At least, not conservative in any moral/political sense. Unless by politics one means socialism. Because Kyle Bass is definitely a socialist, and he’s trying to take down the system from the inside. At least, that’s what all the facts seem to indicate–it’s hard to prove conclusively whether or not anyone is anything. But consider these tidbits about Bass, then see whether or not it seems as though his shade is scarlet.
Bass is originally from Argentina. He has close enough ties to Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner that there are many who refer to him as one of her “lackeys”. Bass currently operates out of Texas, where his hedge fund has been in steady decline. The reason everyone knows who he is stems from the 2008 financial crash. Many saw it coming, few had a platform to tell the public, Bass was one of those few. He pointed out that sub-prime lending would result in a crash very soon, and then it happened. Everyone quickly began to pay attention to him, and he used this instant unanimity to brook further television appearances. Sometime after his success in 2008, his hedge fund began to tank, and maybe that’s the reason he got involved with CAD. Maybe it was his socialist ties to Kristina Fernandez de Kirchner; but either way, CAD is some serious shenanigans.
The Coalition for Affordable Drugs, or CAD for short, uses lawsuits, petitions, and any means at its disposal to decrease the cost of necessary drugs from mainstream pharmaceuticals. In the short-term, sickened people benefit. In the long term, humanity suffers. Because CAD has been successful in devaluing the certain drugs, and Bass has successfully short sold stock in the companies who his organization managed to curtail profit from. If Kyle Bass can make millions this way, doesn’t it mean the pharmaceuticals he’s leeched from have lost millions more? Yes it does; and those millions could have been devoted to the further development of medical solutions.
This is why Bass’ color is red. Maybe he’s done this nasty thing with CAD entirely on his own. But it’s just as likely he got the idea from socialistic political thought. When one considers that his entire career is based on big capitalistic organizations loosing affluence, suddenly the picture becomes even more clear. Bass is a kind of economic hit-man.
Or maybe he’s not. Really, that’s up to the reader. But regardless of politics, a man like Kyle Bass who shows up like that and then has rather large inconsistencies of character requires constant and close scrutiny.
